Wishes Card, Textured Cardstock and Haiti

Photobucket
Our hearts go out to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti, and like so many of you, we're eager to help. We're excited to announce Close To My Heart's February special, Hearts for Haiti-where you can get a great deal while doing great good for those affected by the devastation in Haiti.

From February 1-28, 2010, our 12" x 12" textured cardstock combo packs are buy one, get one FREE-and with every offer purchased, Close To My Heart will donate $2 to Operation Smile's Haiti relief efforts.

Operation Smile is always a fantastic charitable partner-offering free facial reconstruction surgeries to needy children throughout the world. They've currently marshaled their surgeons, medical teams and resources to provide emergency relief in Haiti, and the donations given as part of Hearts for Haiti will be used exclusively for Operation Smile's efforts in Haiti. Already, they have provided life-saving surgeries for many injured victims, setting up two operating rooms in a school house, and living outside in tents. For more information on their on-the-ground response, you can visit www.operationsmile.org/haiti.

That means that for $14.95, you get two packs of textured cardstock (a great deal at about $.30 per sheet!) and Operation Smile will receive $2 to benefit this urgent, important cause. There is no limit to the number of FREE packs you can receive and the donation given! Take this opportunity to stock up on every color combination: Basic, Spring Harmony, Summer Celebration, Autumn Harvest, and Winter Cozy packs are available. Your FREE pack can be the same as or different than the one ordered.

I love the possibilities with our textured cardstock! You can dry emboss, sandpaper distress, or edge distress to expose the white core. PLUS each piece offers two options - on one side is the full color, on the other side is a lighter version of the same color.

Here is a card pattern from our Wishes book (Up in the Corner) using our black textured cardstock. The other side is a dark grey. I've used both sides on the front of this card. I used our white daisy textured cardstock on the inside!
